A vast Website/NationStates [[TheRolePlayer RP world]], incorporating around thirty different countries.

[=NationStates=] has had its fair share of Role-Play 'worlds' - scenarios where [[TheRolePlayer RPers]] group together to create an alternate earth filled with their own countries. What distinguishes AMW from this is longevity; while most of these groups collapse within a month, AMW has been [[LongRunners running for years]].

A Modern World's premise is based in [=NationStates=], and uses the same Role Play techniques as its parent game, but adheres to using real world geography, climate, natural resources, and population as opposed to [=NationStates=] more ambiguous set up. Founded by Drapol in [[LongRunners 2003/2004]], the group has included three different incarnations starting on Jolt and surviving on to the new forums. Basically, this is where [[TheRolePlayer Role Players]] group together to create an alternate earth filled with their own countries.

* AlternateHistory: A key principle of AMW. Divergences from real-life history include:
** The Eastern Roman Empire surviving to the modern era after reclaiming much of its Asian territory in the 16th and 17th centuries, subsequently resulting in the Ottoman Empire never being formed. Same with Western Roman Empire surviving into the modern era with Italy, Spain, Portugal, portions of Austria and Malta never becoming nations.
